Director: Jonny Phillips
Writer: Julian Firth
Producer: Jonathan Blagrove
Starring: David Horovitch, Ann Firbank, Julian Firth

Actor turned director Jonny Phillips’ follow up to the 2013 festival hit ‘Woodwoo’ is a beautifully crafted and performed psychological drama, written by Julian Firth and starring David Horovitch (Mr. Turner, The Young Victoria) and Anne Firbank (Anna & The King).

Professor Philip Stone (Horovitch) is an eminent neuroscientist – now in his seventies – who whilst being interviewed for a high brow television programme falls down a rabbit hole of his own memory and sees for the first time a traumatic and long suppressed event from his childhood in its entirety.
